Great dive bar with pool table, karaoke, great burgers and friendly staff. We will probably go back next time we are in town.

This was my favorite restaurant in the entire Palm Springs area (at least the part we visited). We had lunch here after exiting Joshua Tree NP. I liked everything about it--food, atmosphere, people. My husband said the cheeseburger was the best he ever had. It...More

This place is fantastic! Cold beer, nice staff and amazing burgers. Fun saloon setting. Even if you have to wait for a bit, do it. It's worth it.

Right in the middle of town. They have a nice selection of burgers (many other things on the menu too) and beers both bottled and on tap. If I went back I’d have to try their ribs but the burgers were quite good.

Nothing fancy but good and felt perfect for Joshua Tree. We were there on a quiet night with no band or Karaoke. If you like that kind of stuff check the schedule. We were fine with people watching.

Obvious why people like this place. Food is great, service is great, beer selection is well curated. For these reasons , and the obvious proximity to JTNP, it might be a bit more crowded than one would expect. Would be healthy to expect to wait...More

The food was good, the service okay and the beer cold. Prices were good ($6 draft beer, burgers $10-14). Atmosphere was fun. You are definitely with the locals here and it was fun to people watch. Live music was free. Good times
